Kent v Lancashire LV= County Championship Division One, day three at Canterbury
By Mark Pennell
Patience was the byword for both sides on Friday morning at St Lawrence where Lancashire extended their second innings lead to 204 for the loss of one more wicket.
The visitors went in at the interval on 187 for four with Shivnarine Chanderpaul on 72 not out together with Gareth Cross unbeaten with 28.
Chanderpaul, fresh from a golden duck in the first innings, reached a patient 50 from 113 balls and with seven fours while Cross kept him company in a fifth-wicket stand that has added 57 thus far.
Kent“s sole success of the day came after nine overs when Steven Croft, having added five to his overnight score of 38, aimed an ambitious cut at Simon Cook only to edge the ball through to wicketkeeper Geraint Jones.
Kent skipper Rob Key turned to the off-spin of James Tredwell after an hour, but without success then, just before lunch, Martin van Jaarsveld had one over from the pavilion end without causing alarm.
